Statement of the jury
Polygon is an extraordinary armchair, which arose from the modernist typology of a seat of modest dimensions. It fulfils the functional parameters but with its compact size does not usurp space. Each change in perspective transforms the triangles that define the side view of the armchair into hexagons and other complex polygons. An interesting concept, which subtly plays with perception and is thus never boring. Exciting.
